About Marques De Riscal 2018 Rueda

Named European Winery of The Year in Wine Enthusiast's 2013 Wine Star Awards, Marques de Riscal is one of Rioja's legendary estates. In 1858 Herederos de Marqués de Riscal became the first winery in the Rioja to produce wines following the Bordeaux method of slow fermentation and careful blending.  

Bodegas Marqués de Riscal has over 500 acres of vineyards planted with among other grapes, the indigenous Verdejo variety. A versatile grape with a lot of character and personality, it is very well suited to the extreme conditions of the region and produces a fresh young white wine.

The Verdejo grape is stemmed and cooled and left to macerate in order to extract the maximum aroma from the skins and increase the smooth oiliness of the wine. The must, once fined and clear undergoes slow fermentation at a controlled temperature for 20 days, in order to preserve the varieties characteristic fruitiness.

This 100% Verdejo Rueda shows a bright, straw-yellow color. On the nose it has high aromatic intensity, with tropical fruit and hints of fennel and fresh grass. In the mouth it is both syrupy smooth and refreshing, with a slightly bitter finish which is typical of the variety making it long and pleasant to drink. Overall it is a fresh, well-balanced wine.
